Dear Colleagues:


It is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the first International Symposium: Translation of Liver

 Pathobiology to Clinical Practice to be held at the Shanghai Institute of Liver Diseases in Fudan University-

Affiliated Zhongshan Hospital, Shanghai, China. Rapidly evolving research approaches and disease profiles

as well as emerging therapeutics in the liver field drive us to amend our practice guidelines much more

frequently than ever. Clinical challenges in diagnosis and treatments prompt us to seek creative solutions in

the laboratories. Heterogeneity in disease presentation, histopathological features and therapeutic responses

demand specific therapeutic approaches at the molecular level in an individualized fashion. The main objective

 of this symposium is to provide an exciting showcase for new developments in the diagnosis and treatment

 of liver diseases, as well as a platform for knowledge exchange and interactions among clinicians, scientists,

 graduate students and individuals from industries in Shanghai, a future center of innovation in science and

technologies in the Asia-Pacific region. We, as the co-chairmen of the symposium, look forward with pleasure

 to welcoming you in flower-blooming May 2016 in Shanghai, the largest and most vivid city in China.

 

                                                                                           Sincerely yours,
